The weekend festival celebrates Greek culture in Metro Detroit

A local celebration of Greek culture and traditions returns this weekend with dancing, food and music.

The Yassou Greek Festival, which began Friday afternoon, will be held at St. George Greek Orthodox Church in Bloomfield Hills.

The festival continues until Saturday and Sunday night.

“It should be a great three-day event, we have 150 volunteers helping us and it looks like we’re going to have great weather,” said festival co-chair Cathy Sheiko.

Musical acts on the bill include Detroit Greek band Enigma, the Dave Bennett Quartet, St. George’s Orthodox Church folk dancers and the Magic Bus Band — a Woodstock-style band new to the festival this year. There will also be food vendors and an artisan market to browse.
